Three years after they pulled the pin on the project, Fox has pumped fresh air into the comedy project â€œUsed Guysâ€.
Originally set to go before the cameras in 2006, â€œGuysâ€ centered on a pair of obsolete pleasure clones. The new version will be fairly similar, though the studioâ€™s now restructuring it a tad to be a romantic comedy.
The pic, initially set to star Jim Carrey and Ben Stiller, has regained the interest of Stiller. No word on Carreyâ€™s involvement (itâ€™s possible there is no second male lead now) though Variety says Reese Witherspoon has been mentioned as a possible female lead.
“Little Miss Sunshine” dup Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton are in talks to direct the film; Jay Roach was previously onboard in the Carrey/Stiller days.
Fox halted the film in May 2006, a month prior to the start of lensing, saying “Used Guys” wouldn’t be ready for its scheduled start date because of its futuristic sets. Due to the delays, the studio lost both Carrey and Stiller, who both had other acting commitments. It was later revealed that Rothmanâ€™s crowd actually shut the film down when the budget started to escalate above the $110 million mark.
